Description Sizing Shipping Information
A Rudis was a gift to a gladiator for a special achievement. This signified his release from a slave to a freeman. Our Rudis is an excellent and unique give for someone who has completed service in the military, retired, or completed an academic achievement.

Made in the USA, This is our upgrade rudis. Historically they had an ivory handle. We don't do ivory, but we left the handle with a finished white wooden handle for a beautiful contrast. The handle is not octagon for a very historic look.

Rudis can be engraved with corporate logo, military insignia and/or text in many different fonts. We have done Greek Paddles, like Alpha Epsilon Pi and others. One set was for a group of bestmen for a wedding. See below for engraving examples of our extensive military insignia catalog or on facebook. You may email your .jpg insignia file and engraving text to us at cd@woodenswords.com.

HOW TO ORDER: For text only, you may enter the text in the box above. Then choose the option for "back side engraving" Military customers using the discount code may have engraving on the second side for no additional charge. For graphics or additional engraving information, email us at cd@woodenswords.com. Item is for sword only with engraving, any stands or cases are sold separately.

Rudis Retirement Gifts March 20, 2017
Reviewer: LtCol G. Troy Roesti from HQMC Pentagon  
Purple Heart Armory has provided exceptional service on each and every Rudis ordered for my Marine unit.  The staff quickly responds to email orders by turning out a detailed proof of each Rudis order prior to production.  Once approved, they manufacture a high quality piece in a timely manner.  These gifts have been well received and are a fitting recognition of a warrior's service to his or her country.
